Diagnostic Lab

ULAR provides health surveillance within rodent animal facilities via a “sentinel program, vendor reports, and environmental testing.” The Diagnostic Lab:

  • coordinates the importation and quarantine of animals from non-approved sources (other universities or vendors without dedicated shippers)
  • provides communication and health reports

ULAR also coordinates the shipping of rodents to universities and institutions outside of Ohio State.
